Five Acres High School


The vision for the school's History curriculum is to provide our students with core historical knowledge that they can use in their future study and be able to contextualise historical examples and metaphors in other settings. Students will explore and engage with diverse histories beyond their immediate context. We want to equip students with an array of critical skills and an analytical frame of mind, at the same time cultivating a love of the subject that propels students towards a future interest in the past. 

Studying History will help to provide students with a firm academic base which fits well with a range of academic subjects post 16. This could include going on to study at further and higher education institutes and can include career pathways such as journalism and media, teaching, law, archaeology and art history.
